Viking Lotto Prizes

To win the jackpot in Viking Lotto, you must match all six of your main numbers and the Viking number to the winning numbers drawn. The first two prize levels in Viking Lotto are shared between the participating countries. Each participating country allocates a small amount of the ticket price, which goes towards the prize amounts in the following categories:

Prize Level Odds of Winning Prize Allocation (Per line sold)
6 Main Numbers + Viking Number 1 in 61,357,560 €0.130
6 Main Numbers 1 in 15,339,390 €0.013

The rest of the prize money is allocated according to each National Lottery’s own rules. In Sweden, there are three more ways to win prizes, starting from matching as few as three main numbers. The table below shows all the prize levels, along with the odds of winning and the percentage of the prize fund allocated to each one.

Prize Level Odds of Winning Percentage of Prize Fund
5 Main Numbers 1 in 48,696 20%
4 Main Numbers 1 in 950 30%
3 Main Numbers 1 in 53 50%

The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 51


You can increase your chances of winning a prize by adding the Joker option to your Viking Lotto ticket. The Joker is drawn every Wednesday and Saturday, and must be played with either Viking Lotto or Lotto. What you win on the Joker depends on how much you choose to bet.

To win a Joker prize, you must match the winning numbers in the same positions, starting from the left or the right. You can find the profit plan for Joker below:

Numbers Matched Odds of Winning 10 kr 20 kr 30 kr
All 7 1 in 10,000,000 10,000,000 kr 20,000,000 kr 30,000,000 kr
First 6 or Last 6 1 in 555,556 250,000 kr 500,000 kr 750,000 kr
First 5 or Last 5 1 in 55,556 20,000 kr 40,000 kr 60,000 kr
First 4 or Last 4 1 in 5,556 2,000 kr 4,000 kr 6,000 kr
First 3 or Last 3 1 in 556 200 kr 400 kr 600 kr
First 2 or Last 2 1 in 56 80 kr 160 kr 240 kr

There is a limit to how much can be paid out in Joker. No more than 60 million kr can be paid out in total to winners in the top category, so if there are multiple winners the advertised prize may have to be reduced. This would be done proportionally so that all winners get an equal share, based on how much they bet.

Jackpot Cap

The Viking Lotto jackpot grows if it is not won. It will continue to roll over to the following draw until a player wins it or the jackpot reaches €25 million. This is the jackpot’s cap. Once it reaches this amount, any additional funds will be added to the second prize tier, which is also capped at €25 million.

Booster Fund

To ensure that there is enough money in the pot to pay the minimum €3 million jackpot, the Booster Fund was created. From every Viking Lotto line sold in all participating countries, €0.042 is added to the Booster Fund. The exchange rate on the day of the draw is used to calculate how much countries that don’t use Euros have to donate. This means all the participating countries always contribute an equal amount.
